Michael Buble has a special holiday gift for his naughty and nice fans this year. On Oct. 24, the multi Grammy Award-winning Canadian artist will be releasing his new album "Christmas."
Commented Buble, "Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year for me and my family so naturally it's been a dream of mine to make the 'ultimate' Christmas record. Even though it was summer and 95 degrees in LA, we totally got into the spirit of the holiday. Of course we decorated the studio with Christmas lights in the middle of July and that was a big help. One more thing, my mother told me it's the best record I ever made."
Reteaming with producers David Foster, Bob Rock and Humberto Gatica, it was recorded primarily at Capitol Recording Studios in Hollywood and The Warehouse Studios in Vancouver. The album includes guest performances by Shania Twain on "White Christmas." Buble also put his unique take on such classics as "Silent Night," "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas" and "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town." A Buble original, "Cold December Night," will also be included.
In conjunction with the release of "Christmas," Buble will star in an NBC Holiday Special and is also scheduled to appear on 60 Minutes, the NBC Christmas Tree Lighting (Nov. 30) and Saturday Night Live (Dec. 17).
